'Try This Thursdays'- Melon Cooler


So we have one more big holiday before summer is 'officially' considered over. You guessed it- Labor Day! So if you're having a few guests over for dinner, this simple and light recipe from Country Living is not only eye-catching, but delicious as well!

Ingredients:
2 cups of cantaloupe, cut into half-inch pieces and frozen
2 cups of honeydew melon, cut into half-inch pieces and frozen
1 cup of water
2 tbsp(s) sugar

Directions:
Puree the melons: Place the frozen cantaloupe pieces, 1/2 cup water, and 1 tablespoon sugar into a blender and purée on high speed until fruit is smooth and pourable. Transfer to a bowl and keep chilled. Rinse the blender and repeat using the frozen honeydew, 1/2 cup water, and remaining sugar.

Assemble the cooler: Alternately layer about 1/3 cup of the puréed cantaloupe followed by the same amount of the honeydew melon into 2 large glasses. Repeat until all the purée is used and serve immediately.

I'd love to try this with watermelon as well! Mmmmm...
